Special Appeal for Duke

Please please share far and wide - it has to be Dukes turn to go home, he has worked hard and deserves it - there must be a home for him and with YOUR help we can find it together.
Duke came into our care on 17/08/2015, over 16 months ago, he is a 4 year old beautiful Collie that we rescued from our local council dog pound as an unwanted pet.
Duke has found centre life difficult and at times is very stressed, his true personality can be seen whilst out on his walks and spending time away from the centre.

Duke is your typical Collie dog, full of energy and always seeking the next new adventure with an endless thirst for life. He is now finished his training programme with Robert Duddy, and has made amazing progress, the next step for Duke is to find his home so that he can continue to progress in his own home where he can be settled. 
Duke seeks an experienced owner, who will be committed to gaining his trust, he would be most suited to someone who has an active lifestyle, and a home with no children or other pets.
Once you have gained Dukes trust and he is comfortable with you, you will see an amazing, loving dog, all of the staff and volunteers are routing for Duke, we love him but it's his turn now.
If interested in offering Duke a home please contact or visit the centre during opening hours 12-4pm Tues - Sun 028 71812882

Adoption Procedure - Dogs

If you are looking to adopt a dog from the Rainbow Rehoming Centre please visit the centre where you can see all of the dogs that are in our care.  Our staff can help determine which is the right dog for you and your family.  

Next you will be required to fill out a booking form which is a series of questions to find out if you will be able to look after the dog for its lifetime.  Before any dog leaves the centre a home check is carried out to ensure you have a secure and loving environment for the dog.

Finally, our adoption fee is £100 This adoption fee covers the following:-

  • Worm and de-flea
  • Two vaccinations
  • Neutering
  • Micro chipping

Please Note:

When the Rainbow Rehoming Centre takes in an animal, whether it is a cat, dog, kitten or puppy it is with the intention of finding this animal its forever home. Our commitment to this animal is not temporary though, as even after adoption a Rainbow animal remains a 'Rainbow animal' for life. So if at any time after adoption, whether it is one week, one year or ten years and you find that you cannot take care of your Rainbow pet you must contact us at the centre and your pet will be returned into our care. Under no circumstances should a Rainbow animal be passed on.

If you have any questions regarding the welfare of your pet please contact the Rainbow Centre and we will be glad to help.
